Lucasfilm is currently shooting Han Solo: A Star Wars Story at Pinewood Studios, but it’ll eventually move into the locational shoot soon. We’ve previously learned that locations could include Fuerteventura (Spanish Canary Islands) and an undisclosed area in Italy.
New details could speak to where the film might be set within the Star Wars universe.
Local newspaper La Provincia (via StarWarsNewsNet/SupervivientesDeEndor) has revealed that the dune area in Jandia Natural Park in Fuerteventura could become the desert planet of Coreilla. This isn’t confirmation but we know that all the Legends material could be ignored and Lucasfilm creating a new origin of sorts for Han.
The dune area of Cañada de la Barca, inside the Jandía Natural Park, will become the desert planet of Coreilla, an area where the young Han Solo came from and the place, where he became the best smuggler in the galaxy doing orders for Jabba the Hutt and where, according to Legends, managed to complete the Kessel run in less than twelve parsecs, with its precious ship, the Millennium Falcon.
It’s possible if the film uses Corellia it could involve the Corellian Resistance (Wedge?) and local bounty hunter Dengar.
Corellia was a planet located in the galaxy’s Core Worlds known for its ace pilots and large starships. Vessels such as the Millennium Falcon and Imperial starships were built on Corellia. At some point in the Imperial era, an organization known as the Corellian Resistance operated on the planet, fighting against the Galactic Empire. One of their members, Miru Nadrinakar, attempted to warn them of an upcoming crackdown. It was the homeworld of Han Solo, Wedge Antilles, Crix Madine, BoShek, the Besalisk Gadren, the bounty hunter Dengar, and the Jedi younglings Kalifa and Petro.
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are directing the untitled Han Solo Star Wars movie from a script by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan, with a cast that includes Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Michael K. Williams, Thandie Newton, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, with Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca.
Han Solo is set for release on May 25th, 2018.
